"Pilgrim Strong: Rewriting My Story on the Way of St. James" (Encore Presentation)

Aug 13, 2018

 

It's been commonly noted that we human beings are basically hard-wired for long walks -- and for the thinking, observation, and spiritual reflection that always comes with such walks. Henry David Thoreau, for example, believed that walking alone through the woods was in itself a remedy for most of life's problems. Another such person might be the journalist and storyteller Steve Watkins, who's our guest on this encore edition of ST. In his book, "Pilgrim Strong: Rewriting My Story on the Way of St. James," we find an insightful memoir about what Watkins learned while walking a million and a half steps on one of the world's most ancient routes of pilgrimage: the Camino de Santiago.
